A 21st Century Library?

I recently saw this picture with the caption that this library contains 3 million books.

Photo attribute: John Strassfield, May 2015
Discussion about this photo and what appears to be lack of evidence of 3 million books centered around the value of browsing stacks to find books and disappointment with the disappearing circulation desk.

How do you feel about a library that looks like this?  Is this really the future library of the 21st Century?
